Describe Image HereJuly 23, 2015 (Jackson, Miss.) - Belhaven University's Welcome Week will begin on Saturday, August 15 and we are looking forward to having our students back on campus for another exciting year.

New freshmen and transfer students will have a busy week of moving-in and getting settled into college life. The Welcome Week schedule will keep you updated on everything that is happening each day. Events such as recreation day, a campus-wide cookout, starlight cinema, a pop-up event, luau, a Mississippi Braves game and progressive open halls are just some of the many activities you can expect.

Academic advising and other informative sessions will help you prepare for your upcoming semester of study. Welcome Week is also a good time for students to meet professors and staff.

The Welcome Week Guide, provided at check-in on Saturday, will give you additional information about events, resources and the staff. Students can turn in all necessary forms and paperwork while getting their mailbox key, student ID card and car decal.

Parents, you will receive your own packets at check-in that will include your own agenda and guide to Belhaven. The Welcome Week schedule for parents will give you a chance to meet faculty and staff, a look into college life and a glimpse into what is happening at Belhaven this year.
